So I wrote and asked what kind of lesbian am I yesterday in my blog. Sylvia read it and found a Butch versus Femme test online and so I took it. It was 100 questions and it didn’t take me very long to complete. Here is their list of the types of lesbians:

Extreme Femme 
Lipstick Femme 
Classic Femme 
Practical Femme 
Strong Femme 
Soft Androgyne 
Androgyne 
Hard Androgyne 
Gentle Butch 
Feminist Butch 
Classic Butch 
Boot Butch 
Extreme Butch

So where did I fall in this list? I am a soft androgyne and I think the this is pretty accurate. There are some aspects of the explanation of this type that I don’t agree with, but basically it is pretty close to a strong femme. Here is the explanation of a soft androgyne, I crossed out what DOESN’T apply to me!!

For most of your life and social interaction, you don’t really see yourself as either butch or femme, but if pressed into a corner, you react more femme than butch. You prefer to seek aid rather than solve your problems on your own, and prefer to give aid rather than to encourage someone to stand on their own feet. You’re fairly well balanced over all, with the occasional weakness you haven’t quite yet conquered.

Education is important to you, as you see knowledge as a key to independence and freedom, and you tend to have a higher educational level than your peers, either formally or by self-teaching. You read a lot, and a varied assortment of genres, enjoying cartoons as much as heavy psych drama. Biography, however, bores you. You like historical anecdotes but are not very good at memorizing dates, having a more general sense of time.

Your home is a roof for you and not a showplace. Order is optional. You cook if you have to and are efficient at it but really don’t like to bother. You prefer to be fed. You like small dogs or big cats and the occasional hamster.

You enjoy a fairly strong butch for a partner, along the lines of a Feminist or Classic Butch, and take on other Androgynes as friends. Family is not terribly important to you, and odds are good you came from a home where that was not the primary issue. You may have a good, but distant relation with your family, or may not be in touch at all, but it’s pretty certain you don’t live with them unless you have to, or in the same city.

If you would like to take this test go to http://members.tripod.com/~womens_voices/BF100/BF100.html and give it a try!

I don’t really think it matters what kind of lesbian a person is as long at they are true to themselves! I did find this to be fun though!
